Spring is officially here! Dry skin and cold weather be gone! Not exactly. most of us are left with the aftermath of cold weather, dry air, hard water and loss of moisture. Hemp is known to take care of that! It’s concentrated ‘earthy’ smelling oil in a dark dropper bottle. It’s instructions specifically say ‘massage into very dry areas’. Not only is it good for dry areas but great for areas exposed to extreme temperatures.
The Body Shop’s Hemp oil is great as a scalp treatment, cuticle oil, rash salve (eczema or contact dermatitis), dry patches on elbows and between fingers. Can also be dropped into lighter lotions for more moisture.
From The Body Shop UK website, ‘Our hemp seed oil comes from hemp plants grown in England. The plants are very fast-growing and thrive in the damp climate. According to the farmers, the plants are naturally resistant so there is no need to use pesticides’…it loos like ‘weed’, smells remotely like ‘weed’, but it is definitely not. 🙂
The Body Shop also carries a Hemp range of products in a hand cream, lip balm, foot cream and hand wash-which are all wildly popular for those who don’t like the perfumed scent. If you’ve got a sensitivity to almonds and/or almond oil; you may want to refrain from using this oil. There are other body/hand oil alternatives! If you plan on using this-please don’t ‘get high’.
